The number of deaths per day related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) are expected to peak in mid-April, according to new scientific data.

There could be as many as 3,000 fatalities per day during that peak, according to graphs created by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metric. (See image above.)

According to that data, the predicted total number of deaths nationally will be 81,766 by early August.
